Stevenage sign Southend midfielder

Anthony Grant, once of Chelsea, has turned down a new deal at Roots Hall to sign for Boro

Stevenage have signed midfielder Anthony Grant from Southend United.

The tough-tackling 25-year-old was out of contract at United but had been offered a new deal at Roots Hall.

However, it seems that playing in League 1 next season had swayed the former Chelsea midfielder’s decision in Stevenage’s favour.
